i was quite funny, a few years back. i've been wasting time reading the archives again. another effective way of escaping the here and now! as is always the case (there must be a law about it) as soon as i start seriously thinking about leaving, my current location seems to become more attractive. good people, fun conversation and friendly ribbing. a sense of community, a sense of being an accepted part of the 'family'. it's a lot to give up! how do i do it?
